Welcome to Notchcliff Nature Programs!  We offer weekly opportunities for young children to experience nature with their whole bodies, hearts, and minds. We nurture children’s need for nature connection and outdoor play during seasonal, immersive outdoor classes in all kinds of weather. We hike, sing, climb, dance, building, create, listen, wonder, and investigate the wonderous natural world together.

Discover options at Notchcliff Forest Preschool, the K-2nd Forest Kinder Co-Op. Stay tuned for our free drop-in Nature Storytime, Forest Theatre Puppet Shows, and Fox Cubs Parent/Child classes for 2-3-year-olds coming Spring 2021.

By utilizing the grounds at Glen Meadows Retirement Community, in Glen Arm, MD children enjoy not only the expansive natural habitats on campus, but also the wisdom of elders in the community. 

Contact Monica if you'd like to discuss the program or take a virtual tour.
